[lit-ideas] Re: Locating Friere's foot

Robert, is there any place that this thesis can be found. Sounds like something I would like.

RP:
'Language comes back from the holidays and finds the house in a horrible mess: Wittgenstein, family resemblances, definitions, and knowledge.'

: ) What a great title! So whatever happened to young Mr, Heilmayr? Did he kill himself or turn to poetry? (same thing really).

I realize Eric's comment about Friere is a throwaway gibe, but since it
touches on one of the few areas I am marginally qualified to engage, I
will quickly note that the article linked grossly mischaracterizes what
I understand to be the core concepts of Friere's pedagogy.

In 1984, I supervised a thesis on some aspects of Freire's pedagogy.
I was not then especially conversant with Freire, and I agreed to supervise the thesis only if the student (who was conversant with it) would guide me by selecting the readings, explaining their relative importance and their interrelationships. It was a good thesis. While we read and discussed Freire together I found nothing in his thought and writings that resembled the (scary) caricature of him that has been presented to us.

The thesis was 'Literacy and freedom: a study of Paulo Freire's pedagogy,' by Alejandro S. Plessl.

While looking it up in the Reed library's catalogue last night, I discovered that in 1982, I'd supervised a thesis with this engaging title:

'Language comes back from the holidays and finds the house in a horrible mess: Wittgenstein, family resemblances, definitions, and knowledge.' by
Stephan Robert Heilmayr.

Robert Paul,
wondering what happened to the heat
